Find a The Death Cafe Event
Where: United States (map)
With a Death Cafe, the idea is to get people from all backgrounds together over tea, coffee and delicious cake, to simply talk about death, a normal aspect of life that is generally feared by our culture. The hope of the Death Cafe movement is to simply normalize this phase of life by allowing groups of people to talk about death. A Death Cafe is not a support group or a means of selling services, but is instead a simple social gathering. There have been Death Cafes all over Colorado and the US. Learn More

William Shakespeare Presented by Active Minds
Where: East Boulder Senior Center, 5660 Sioux Dr, Boulder, CO 80303 (map)
Born 450 years ago in 1564, William Shakespeare is regarded by many as the greatest writer in the English language. Although he is most famous for his plays, he rose to fame in his life as a poet, writing 154 sonnets and two long narrative poems. Most of his plays were not published until after his death in 1616, leading some to question his authorship. Join Active Minds as we seek to understand Shakespeare’s life and connect his story to his plays and poems. This event is free and sponsored by Balfour Senior Living.

A Musical Salute to Winter!
Where: Longmont Senior Center, 910 Longs Peak Ave, Longmont, CO 803501 (map)
Composers have always been inspired by the world around them, particularly the ever-changing whims of nature. In the hands of these music-makers, winter becomes more than a few months of cold. The beauty of snowfall, the introspective gloom of gray days, the quiet of a forest, the bareness of trees, the longing for life to be renewed are all captured in great works by Antonio Vivaldi, Jean-Baptiste Lully, Peter Tchaikovsky, Claude Debussy, Franz Schubert and others (including Paul Simon!). We'll sample a number of these, so be sure to bundle up. Cost is $4.00 at the door. Please RSVP to 303-651-8411. Learn more about the Longmont Senior Center.
